Kids always have and always will love animals and, if we're honest, even the most grown up people will still let out a little "awwww" at a lamb, or a cute duckling.
Perhaps surprisingly for a city, attractions in London include free to visit farms that allow children to interact with animals that wouldn't normally be found in the urban environment. So whatever your age, the free farms make a great day out for any visitor.
Deen City Farm in South London has long been a favourite for children and families with a passion for animals, it provides a home for pigs, poultry, horses, rabbits, sheep and cows amongst other farmyard favourites. Whilst the animals are given their own space to live in, the farm does also have designated petting areas, allowing you and your children to get up close to all of the animals, making it a really memorable day out for the whole family.
You can be sure that you and your family will have a great day out at any one of these attractions. Although the farms shown on our site are all free to visit they do have substantial running costs, so if you can afford it please leave a donation.
